              Rearranging Formulae

              Rearranging formulae is a key topic at GCSE.  Students learn how to use the balance method and order of operations to change the subject of a formula.  As learning progresses the students begin to consider formulae involving powers and roots.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to rearrange a formula involving addition and subtraction terms.
              • Most students should be able to rearrange a formula involving a combination of product, division, addition and subtraction terms.
              • Some students should be able to rearrange a formula involving powers using the balance method.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
